Babes on Bikes

Babes on Bikes is a campaign to make cycling safe and accessible for women and children in Adelaide.

We don’t believe signs and paint on the road are enough to keep us safe, we need separated bike paths that provide an integrated and direct route to the places we need to go.

We need investment in family friendly and female friendly cycling infrastructure in the inner suburbs of Adelaide and beyond, for our children and the planet.

Join campaign partners Bike Adelaide and Australian Parents for Climate Action.

Kidical Mass is more than just a protest, it gives children a voice, creating a positive vision for the future, connecting the young and old across the cycling community.

Join our local event on Sunday 25 September 2022 at 10 am beginning and ending at Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli.  

Our Motherload Movie Screening Event was held on Sunday 29 May 2022, over 100 people joined us at Healthy Living Precinct, Welland to view this award-winning film.

Protest Parade

Held on Saturday 6 November 2021 to coincide with the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.

The protest parade was designed to be family-friendly and fun. There were no speeches. Instead, it was an hour of power as we rode, walked and pushed our way north from Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square to Pennington Gardens West.
